Vulnerability Details

A directory-traversal attack is based on the premise that web clients are limited to specific directories within the Windows files system. The initial directory access by web clients is known as the root directory on a web server. This root directory typically stores the home page usually known as Default or Index, as well as other HTML documents for the web server. The web server should allow users to access only these specific directories and subdirectories of root. However, a directory- traversal attack permits access to other directories within the file system. The encoded version of / (slash) in ../ directory traversal request (%2E%2E%2F) seems to be now fixed, after our previous alert.

Spamina should define access rights to private folders on the web server, implement a special characters filtering, apply patches and hotfixes.

Proof of Concepts
